Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Go step by step, and with patience. Above all, try to have fun with it.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First we would get to know each other. Find out they're interests, etc. Then move to which subjects like like/dislike the most, and after explaining the importance of the given subject, we begin the tutoring lesson.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Teach them how to learn and teach them why it is important to be independent.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By explaining to them how important/relevant the subject is. I would also use metaphors, role models, and finally provide an incentive to stay motivated.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
If I could not explain properly myself, I would use metaphors and analogies. If that did not work then I would use a YouTube video.
